I??ve been having some problems with my neck this week so this morning I walked down to the village for some treatment on it by the local physiotherapist. She was running about 20 minutes late and as I sat in the empty waiting room I noticed the rather nice shadows and lines created by the venetian blinds. I had my camera with me on the off-chance I would find a photo for today on my walk home so I took the opportunity to fire off a few frames. Thank goodness I was the only person there ?? I would have received some really odd looks otherwise! I played around with various shapes but I felt this long, tall crop worked best to echo the line of the vertical cord. I??m pleased to say that as well as being a successful photo opportunity the physiotherapy worked well too ?? I can now move my head in all directions!

      How creative! This turned out very well. I liked the focus on the cord. The shadows are neat, too. And no dust the blinds!

      A beautiful light deceiving the shadow
      Stripes, thread and hup we can create clear or dark, bright or black worlds

      Incredible lighting and exposure on the blinds - wonderful detail in the cord. Good eye to see this great shot! I'm happy that you're better after your treatment!
